4 Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your Marine Air Conditioner

On the other hand, if your vessel is equipped with a marine air conditioner that isn’t working properly, then it may be time for a replacement. Marine air conditioning units have a few distinct signs that let you know that it’s time for a replacement.
- Old Age - As a rule of thumb, your marine air conditioner should be replaced every 7 to 12 years. If your unit is older than that, then you should chat with a technician about purchasing a new unit for your vessel.
- Deteriorating Condenser Coils - If your coil is flaking or over-oxidized then your refrigerant line could be on the verge of rupturing.
- Lack of Cooling - One of the most obvious signs that your AC unit needs to be replaced is lack of cooling. If heat isn’t being transferred fast enough and your unit is blowing hot air, or not enough cold air to support your enclosed space, then you may need a new unit.
- Hard Starting - If your compressor is dragging and your breaker is tripping then it may be time for a new marine air conditioning unit.
